Thank you to everyone that made it out to our Auction and Fundraiser last weekend! It was a great success! With your help we were able to make over $3,700 towards our goal of buying a car and getting back to PNG. Praise God! We had a great time as Lloyd led a live auction, a silent auction and we had a dinner of wings/burgers/hotdogs and worship led by our friends Zech, Lydia, David and Julia. Thank you to all of our volunteers!
We are still $1558 short for our monthly goal. That is roughly just 16 more people partnering at $100 a month! If you have considered partnering with us in the past but just haven’t signed up yet, please sign up! We can’t buy our plane tickets until you do.
You’re invited to attend our partner dinner and live auction on November 5th from 5pm-8pm at 121 Community Church in Grapevine, TX. We are excited to announce that there will be LIVE music from David Parker as well as a LIVE auction of items done by our very own auctioneer, Loyd Sawyers. Mark your calendars, because this is an event you won’t want to miss!
This weekend we had our Commissioning service at 121 Community Church. It was so great to know that our entire church is behind us; supporting us and praying for us as we go. We are so grateful for God’s provision over this year as he has provided everything we needed, even when we doubted Him. We are also grateful for the church, and how they have walked beside us throughout this entire time. So many people have spoken about how they are intrigued by how 121 operates, specifically through the “Sending Team”. A group of 20 people that have agreed to diligently meet every month and pray for us. As well as take care of our families while we are gone and send us monthly care packages.
The coolest part of the service, hands down was when Ross opened it up for an “Open Mic” time for everyone to share what they were grateful for, or what ways God has been working in their lives. Wow. It was powerful.

Thanks to our sending church, 121 Community Church, for letting us speak on Sunday! We had a ton of response and are so happy to see everyone excited about Bible translation. Also a huge shout out to our sending team leader, Jonathan Hollon for helping us at the booth!
